Gillian Anderson was great in this play as was the other main characters...watching theatre is nothing like TV as it's live, no retakes, everything is in front of you. Encourage ppl to watch especially if they studied the novel in school.

It is a long show though at almost 3 hrs!!!

You have a couple of more days to watch it as it's available until 7pm UK time on Thursday 28 May 2020
